it might be a anal fissure or hemorrhoids. you need to drink 2 liters of water. Make sure you wipe yourself proper, if possible use a bidet. if you suffer from constipation this needs to be addressed. Weleda makes a cream for hemorrhoids (it has ingredient that will help soothe the rectum). Make sure there is no blood in the stool or on the paper. If this has been a problem for a while i suggest you have it seen to - consult your practitioner.
